Kings 104 Trojans 96

CALGARY — The SAIT Trojans are one of the teams RDC Kings head coach Clayton Pottinger was worried about this season.

And while the season is far from over the Kings got the first blow in as they downed the Trojans 104-96 Friday.

The win gave the Kings a 4-0 record while the Trojans sit at 2-1.

The Kings dominated the game except for the fourth quarter when they were outscored 36-25. They led 25-20, 50-38 and 79-60 by quarters.

Ian Tevis, who had only six points at the half, finished with 27 points, four steals, five assists and four rebounds. Shayne Stumpf had 18 points and 12 rebounds, Matt Matear 18 points and seven boards and Spencer Klassen 11 points. Ramo Adun added 11 points off the bench.

Dalton Spencer had 27 points for the Trojans, who took advantage of a string of turnovers by the Kings to make the game closer than it was. The Kings finished with 25 turnovers compared to 16 for SAIT.

Trojans 67 Queens 62

The Queens, despite playing without starting forward Kiana Mintz, turned in a solid effort before the Trojans managed to pull away in the final minute.

The teams were tied 61-61 before the Queens went cold from the floor and the line. They missed three of their final four free throws and a pair of inside field goals.

The Queens trailed 38-28 at the half. They outscored the Trojans in the second half, including 19-12 in the third quarter.

Emily White had 20 points, seven rebounds, five steals and two assists while Dedra Janvier had 12 points and four rebounds for RDC.

The teams stayed in Calgary and face St. Mary’s University today.
